Drug Cartels Fight Legalization

From Keith Halderman at the Liberty and Power Group Blog

The Drug War Chronicle is reporting that members and candidates of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) are being subject to violent attacks. The SDP Party Chairman Jose Carlos Diaz Cuervo believes this is happening because the party’s platform strongly calls for the legalization of drugs. He asserts that, "doubtless, unlike the federal government, it appears the drug traffickers do understand that the regulation of that market would take the business away from them and would be a more intelligent way to combat them."

It doesn't surprise me that drug cartels understand market forces better than the governments that fight the drug war. Sphere: Related Content
